We went to the St. Petersburg North District Meeting today. The training was on teach where you find. The concept was that as the missionaries are finding (street contacting or tracting), they can begin teaching immediately by offering a short lesson. Then they can ask for a return appointment. They did a lot of role playing of this with other companionships.
The district leader, Elder Gneiting, is another young missionary who is anxious to learn. Following the meeting, he stopped us before we could leave the building to ask what he could do to improve the meeting.
Following the meeting, we did three apartment inspections. Two of the companionships were in their apartments fixing their lunch when we arrived. That shortens the inspection process because Renee can just tell them what they should do to improve and doesn't have to leave a note. Fortunately, all three of these apartments were well maintained.
